Somebody please tell me it is not December 20th?
Please forgive my dropping off the face of the blogosphere. Yet again. The shame. I know. Seriously. Sorry. I never intend for it to happen, it just kind of does. I don't really like it when other bloggers suddenly stop blogging with no explanation so I have no excuses here.
Anyway (if you're still out there?) I thought I'd share some of the goings on around here.
I wish I could say that they were of the DIY/design type of goings on, but, alas, it is not so.
We hosted a lovely Thanksgiving and I meant to blog about it last month. Here are a few pictures of how I decorated the table. It's easily translatable for Christmas.
And this was written before I even had a glass of wine.
I kept the decorations simple, which is how I like them. I tied sheer brown ribbon into bows on my Target vases and put rosemary into each of them. I also used the same sparkly votives that I used last year.
After we were done eating (which was like 20 minutes) we all went around and read what we had written on our tags. This was my favorite part of the day. It was so nice to go around and hear what everyone was thankful for.
We had planned on playing kickball after dinner, like we did last year, but then we realized that none of us actually had a kickball so we played Apples to Apples instead.
You can see last years post about our Thanksgiving here.
I have to partly blame my disappearance on Veronica Roth. Maybe you know her? She's the author of the Divergent trilogy. Olivia and I went to see the movie Catching Fire over Thanksgiving weekend, and we saw the movie trailer for Divergent, which is coming out in March. Olivia is an avid reader and I often read a lot of the young adult novels that she does. I knew she had the book, and I was intrigued by the movie trailer so, I quickly read Divergent. Then, I had to read the rest of the trilogy, so I read Insurgent and then Allegiant. Did you read them? What did you think about Allegiant? I'm still a little heart broken.
Then, like most of the country, we got hit with an arctic blast.
I'm so thankful for you! For taking the time out of your busy day to drop in on my little corner of the world to read my blog. Thank you!
